I’m picking up a project a colleague has started (Geb functional tests). I’m returning to Gradle after a two year break, so please pardon my ignorance.
I have two objectives
The project runs in Eclipse * Do I use the gradle wrapper, or do I install gradle (and force all other developers to install gradle) - as I understand things today, wrapper is the way to go * Do I use the eclipse Gradle plugin ? (I’ve installed it as part of latest STS) * No dependencies checked in - all dependencies to be sourced from Artifactory * Access to the internet is via a network proxy that requires authentication. If Artifactory can give me everything I need, can I avoid proxy access? I would prefer not to enter my network username and password in a configuration file (and force other developers to do the same). * Do I have a use for the Gradle Artifactory plugin ?
The project runs in Jenkins * Jenkins has no access to the internet * Jenkins does not have Gradle installed * Jenkins sources all its dependencies from Git and from Artifactory * Do we need to install the Jenkins Gradle plugin ?
I would have liked to watch the video on the wrapper, but YouTube is blocked on this corporate network, and on the iphone it doesn’t seem to work.
